    Even though the original NBA Jam is 17 years old, and the formula hasn't changed much since then, EA's latest revival seems surprisingly fresh and has an irresistible playability. The controls are simple enough that you'll know them by heart within minutes, the graphics are fun, and the commentator has so many one-liners that you can't help but get a smile on your face. Boomshakalaka!

    Behind the warm and inviting visuals lies a treacherously difficult platform game. But Donkey Kong Country Returns is as fun as it is hard, and goes to show that the old school 2D platformer is alive and well. There are plenty of gimmicks and new ideas along the way to keep things fresh, and the graphics are absolutely gorgeous.

    Two Worlds II is a solid role playing game that improves on its predecessor in every way. It's filled to the brim with entertainment and atypical situations that will keep you glued to your seat. While it's certainly not without flaws, the many good parts more than make up for it.

    Bejeweled is as addictive as ever, and the new Quest game mode keeps the experience fresh and varied. Popcap have reinvented their classic and made it into their most enticing package yet.

    While it may initially feel wildly different than other stables in the genre, the combat system of Blazblue: Continuum Shift quickly reveals itself to be logical, intuitive and in possesion of enormous depth. The mix of 2D fighters and 3D backgrounds is a little jarring, but otherwise Blazblue is a rock-solid fighter that plays as well as the household names.

    Playing Quake on a console might seem like blasphemy, but this modern Xbox port of the 11 year old Quake III Arena plays much better than you'd expect. In a time where military shooters dominate the online space, playing some oldschool deathmatch is incredibly refreshing. Quake has aged well, and this version offers plenty of content and entertainment without having to rely on nostalgia.

    A charming little puzzle game with a novel concept and plenty of challenges. The cute look and feel might be a bit too much for some, and the difficulty is a little uneven, but the game is still well worth a look, especially for its two-player mode.

    Dead Rising 2 is everything the first game should have been. Even though the zombie motif may be overworn, the game hits a perfect blend of horror, gore, mystery and morbid humor – the essence of everything great about the zombie genre. Annoying and bad boss fights bring the final score down, but other than that, Dead Rising 2 gets almost everything right.

    FIFA 11 is a rock solid football game that in many ways nudges the gameplay in the right direction. But the developers should have a look at their Madden-colleagues, as FIFA needs to rediscover itself in many of the aspects that don't directly influence the gameplay, so the yearly update doesn't just become business as usual. The goal every year is to come as close to the real football experience as possible, and you only get that when you show and understand the drama outside of the pitch, too.

    Not only is this Sonic as we remember him, with all the familiar powerups and rings to collect, there are also plenty of new additions to keep the experience fresh. It's a fantastic rollercoaster ride, and although it's short, it's everything we hoped for in a sequel to the classic 2D platformers.

    Medal of Honor is the thinking man's Call of Duty. If you like shooting terrorists but felt the story and campaign of Modern Warfare 2 was too darn stupid, this is the game for you. Mechanically it's close to its competitor, but content-wise it's a class better and more thoughtful. It's an enjoyable if short experience that is bound to leave a lasting impression.

    A solid take on the cover-based shooter that borrows heavily from Gears of War but adds plenty of its own spice. The slow motion effect that activates whenever you're close to dying is absolutely brilliant and will hopefully see its way to other games. There's something intangible missing, which keeps Vanquish from reaching top marks, but it remains a strong action game and deserves to become a hit.

    One of the most original games we've seen in a long while. You play as a ghost, tasked with solving your own murder case, and in the process saving witnesses and others from the same potential fate by manipulating the enviroment in the precious few minutes before their would-be killer tries to take their life. The puzzles often border on genius and will challenge your imagination regularly. A well-thought out and well-executed puzzle game.

    It takes a little while to get going, but once it hits its stride, this clever Lemmings-inspired puzzle game will leave you glued to your dual screens. With 200 levels the longevity should be in place, and so we'll heartily recommend Mario vs. Donkey Kong to any puzzle loving DS owner.

    Just like previous entries in the series, Marvel vs Capcom 3 doesn't care too much about balance, which is to say that this might not be a game for dedicated Street Fighter fans. What it is, though, is a chaotic fighting where pyrotechnincs, special abilities and a wide selection of characters always fill up every inch of the screen. And it's highly entertaining all the way to the annoying end boss, who as it often is with fighting games is the absolute weakest part of an otherwise very solid and entertaining effort.

    The unique style and setting of Double Fine's matryoshka-based Stacking provides plenty of fun and challenging puzzles and tasks. It's polished, detailed and filled charm and inventivesness. There may not be a lot left to do after you've collected everything there is to collect, but if you enjoy clever puzzles and original designs, don't miss out on Stacking.

    Bulletstorm is every action fan's wet dream. It has excellent playability, grand visuals and many hours of entertainment. The story is a bit average, and the violence and gore may be a little too much at times, but the game makes up for it with great gameplay, and the skillshot system will keep us coming back to perfect our scores.

    Old-school sidescrolling shooter that will certainly appeal to nostalgics, but is definately not for everyone. It's insanely difficult, but if you loved this type of game on the old 16 bit consoles, it's well worth a look.

    Short but otherwise highly entertaining shooter game filled to the brim with unique aesthetics and enjoyable gameplay. The newly added multi player lacks depth, though. There are plenty of shooter games around these days, but Pixeljunk Shooter is one of the most entertaining on PSN right now.

    EA is still miles ahead of everyone else when it comes to digital boxing, and Fight Night Champion only adds to their lead. There's still room for improvement, though, even if the new Rocky-inspired story mode is a wonderful addition.

    A great turn based strategy title that mixes Space Hulk with Fallout Tactics. Still a bit buggy at times, but a deep and different iOS title that mixes RPG elements with strategy and delivers a great interface og nice graphics. Its free to try with IAP of the full game, so no need to stay away. Test it yourself.

    A clutter of menus, a crazy amount of buttons, but a great mix of Tower Defense and RPG elements with tons of loot thrown in for added pleasure.

    If you are looking for a good story and a different experience look no further. Homefront takes the horrors of war really close. Near the ending of the game it ends up resembling more of a Bruckheimer movie than a war classic, which is a shame. Excellent multi player is sure to entertain players tired of Call of Duty.

    There are many places where Shift 2 seems unpolished. The career is rather boring, the announcer grating, and navigating the menus is a tedious affair. Once you hit the track, though, most of the problems get left behind in a cloud of dust as you're careening through the corners looking for the next apex. Awesome graphics and great sound. Shift 2 is not for everyone, but with enough patience there's a great racing experience hidden here, and races that can compete with the giants of the genres.

    One of the most entertaining turn-based action-strategy games we've had our hands on. The large amount of content and mechanics to envelop yourself in is fantastic, and never becomes boring. It seems like a perfect fit for multiplayer, so we're disappointed that only a hotseat mode is on offer. But if you don't mind playing on your own, Ghost Recon: Advance Wars offers a long and satisfying single player campaign that will make you cheer with joy.

    Top Spin 4 is a pleasure to play, not only for tennis fans but for any gamer who enjoys good multiplayer. It has everything that makes the genre great, makes a couple of smart additions, and ends up as the best tennis game to date. And it's accessible enough that anyone with a modicum of interest in the sport can play along.

    The PC-version has already been showered with praise, and most of it applies to the Xbox 360 outing as well. Runic Games have done a fantastic job of adapting the game to the console. The framerate gets choppy when a lot of monsters are on screen, but otherwise Torchlight is a very strong Diablo clone, and definately the best of its kind on Xbox.

    Tomb Raider Trilogy is a wonderful trip down memory lane. The graphics have been touched up nicely, and the sheer amount of content means you'll get plenty of value out of this package.

    Not the most original game ever, and probably no replacement for Diablo III. Nevertheless, Dungeon Hunter Alliance is a solid dungeon crawler that absolutely shines in co-op (even on same screen). And you just can't beat the price. Well worth getting, but make sure you bring some friends over.

    An excellent and highly original platformer that mixes elements of Prince of Persia, Metroid and Ikaruga of all things. Quality of this kind is rare among download-only titles.
